Rain was pouring down and it didn’t go as planned. Suki commented: “It has been raining all day, so no wonder it’s full of lakes.” But, England’s biggest national park still offers a lot for motorhoming vacationers.
Paul and Suki set out to Kendal. After getting lost, they found the Kendal Mint Factory.
Suki went behind-the scenes to the factory and bought as many Kendal mint cakes she could.
The mint cakes were made in Kendal over a century and became well-known when Sir Edmund Hillary used them to climb Mount Everest.
Suki described the cakes as “peppermint Sugar” and said they gave her lots of energy.
